That to me is the hardest thing to gauge, because sometimes there are people that come out and take things that we’re familiar with and turn them on their heads. James Blake did that at first in my opinion, unfortunately with music critics and others prematurely labeling what he did as “post-dubstep” and his creativity kind of waned, it ended up not really going much of anywhere.
To me the only way to gauge where it’s going to go is just to remain open to sounds and accept that you may never know where the next direction is. Like the kind of “dubwise” trend within the dubstep scene, I mean it makes perfect sense that that became a more trending sound because artists and DJs were looking back at the roots of dubstep again in a more widespread way, maybe as a kind of search for a direction. But I don’t know, I’m just kind of guessing.
